Warrenton Interchange project contract awarded

road work transportationThe Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded a $19.6 million contract on Wednesday to Shirley Contracting Company LLC of Lorton to construct the Warrenton Interchange project.

The project involves constructing a new interchange south of Warrenton to improve safety and reduce congestion at the intersection of Route 15/17/29 (Eastern Bypass), Route 15/17/29 Business and Route 880 (Lord Fairfax Drive) – one of the busiest intersections along the Route 29 corridor in Fauquier County.

Construction is anticipated to begin this fall.

More information about the Warrenton Interchange Project, funded through the SMART SCALE prioritization process, can be found on the Virginia Department of Transportation’s website.

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
